    Abstract

    Open space office design has different type of open plan. From the formal open plan design to the informal open plan. The spatial open plan settings of work organizations affect the organizational and the employee behaviour. The formal settings create effective and efficient space by lining up individuals and exposing them to supervision. The informal setting constitutes a less linear setting where the employees are organized in circles and groups so as to facilitate communication and interaction. The formal settings create more effective, more efficient space and more productive employee in such a way. Yet the employee could not have social structures. The purpose of this qualitative research is to analyze the formal open space office and how to rehumanizing it and yet keeping productivity of the employee and having an effective and efficient space. One of the solutions is to create an indoor plantation and exercise inside the office. The other solution is to create an informal and comfortable eating space.
